I spent one full year training in a gym and another in the ring and gym before I made my professional wresting debut. That was a lot of hours spend trying to sculpt a respectable professional wrestler body from an overweight, flabby muscled, alcoholic bod. I had a lot of guidance and coaching from guys I knew that were ripped, but I also hit the books (which is what I do when researching any new project).
Making the Game Triple H’s Approach to a Better Body was leant to me by a colleague who was a pretty big fan of my goals; who later went on to become a super fit martial artist – you’re looking good buddy! It turned out to be my favourite fitness book. Both because Triple H shares some personal stories, sort of a short autobiography and because his passion for weightlifting and muscle building is both infectious and inspiring.
It was in this book that I learned that is was okay that I felt like puking during or after a hard workout, that in fact it was good, that I should just puke and get back to the weights; which I did.
Wrestling fans should read this book. Anyone interested in body building should read this book. Hell, anyone should read this book, it’s a good read!
Actually I should reread this book! My body could use the inspiration.
